Science and Research

A history of more than 500 years of scientific research provides the foundations of Danish society as we know it today. The products that surround us in our modern lives would not have been possible if it had not been for the knowledge and technology achieved through this process. The goal is for Danish research to continue to be innovative and possess the highest scientific quality.

Research Councils and Foundations

In Denmark, public research funds are allocated according to a two-stringed approach 1) a fixed core funding of ongoing research and teaching activities to universities and government research institutions and 2) external funding.
The Research Councils and Foundations are prime distributors of grants through the external string.
